Al Jazeera English

Al Jazeera English is mainstream 24 hour news & current affairs channel and English sister of the Al Jazeera (Arabic) – the first brand launched by Al Jazeera Media Network. The ruling house “House of Thani” funds the network and has ownership to it. The channel shouldn’t be mistaken as Al Jazeera America- the American domain of the group. The stories particularly form Middle-East, Africa and rest of the continents including news, current affairs talks, debates, documentaries, sports feeds, technology and business are broadcasted in high-definitions. The first ever English Channel headquartered in the Arab dominated gulf region is a voicing the regional and global perspectives to over one billion English speakers while viewing issues through a Middle-Eastern frame.

The channel is decentralized with its management based in London and Doha. The channel came up with four news centers sharing broadcasts from Doha, Kuala Lumpur, Washington, D.C. and London. The news bulletins launched from Washington DC and Kuala Lumpur were ceased in 2012 and 2011. The agencies of the Al Jazeera are one of the few media outlets having representations in besieged Gaza and Harare. The global news brand truly focuses on the stories of the developing and underdeveloped regions around the world. The circulation of information and setting the news agenda (unbiased and objective) for the viewers and observers is critically maintained by the network. The fearless journalism is giving birth to alternative news network in the West and East. The investigative unit and documentaries are the best part of the network that exerts a pull on million of audiences all over the world.
